  CHECK READING LIST (2)  

An acre of performance is worth a whole world of promise.
      - [Performance]

Some people can stay longer in an hour than others can in a week.
      - [Time]

The disposition to give a cup of cold water to a disciple is a far nobler property than the finest intellect. Satan has a fine intellect, but not the image of God.
      - [Benevolence]

Is it the shrewd October wind
  Brings the tears into her eyes?
    Does it blow so strong that she must fetch
      Her breath in sudden sighs?
      - Gone [October]

Out of the fragrant heart of bloom,
  The bobolinks are singing;
    Out of the fragrant heart of bloom
      The apple-tree whispers to the room,
        "Why art thou but a nest of gloom
          While the bobolinks are singing?"
      - The Bobolinks are Singing [Bobolinks]

Lord, for the erring thought
  Not unto evil wrought:
    Lord, for the wicked will
      Betrayed, and baffled still:
        For the heart from itself kept,
          Our thanksgiving accept.
            For ignorant hopes that were
              Broken to our blind prayer:
                For pain, death, sorrow, sent
                  Unto our chastisement:
                    For all loss of seeming good,
                      Quicken our gratitude.
      - The Undiscovered Country
        [Thanksgiving Day]

The little wind that hardly shook
  The silver of the sleeping brook
    Blew the gold hair about her eyes,--
      A mystery of mysteries.
        So he must often pause, and stoop,
          An all the wanton ringlets loop
            Behind her dainty ear--emprise
              Of slow event and many sighs.
      - Through the Meadow [Hair]
